The Easiest Way to Create Beautiful Custom Invitations for a Wedding or Baby Shower

Hey friends! Today, I’m excited to share this post with you sponsored by Basic Invite.

When my husband and I got engaged, I really wanted to order our invites online. I searched and searched for countless hours, trying to find the perfect wedding invitation, which I could personalize with our theme colour, royal blue. After days of searching, I couldn’t find the right company to do the job! So I decided to make the cards myself!

Man, was it tougher than I thought! I thought, I could just drop by my local craft store, pick up the card stock, the double sided tape, the gems, etc…How hard could it be?

I ended up making multiple trips to the craft store and spending tons of money, not to mention all the time and effort I had to put in to designing and putting together the cards! I had to get help from family and friends to glue all the pieces together! It was definitely a team effort! We had a whole assembly line going!

Finally, after days and days of working hard to put the wedding invites together, we finally got it done! Although the cards did look pretty, and they were the right colour, I wished I was able to just order the cards online to save me the time, money and effort!

Now with Basic Invite, you don’t have to go through all the hassle that I went through! Getting your invites, no matter what the occasion, doesn’t have to be as painful as my experience!

The easiest way to create custom invitations for your wedding or baby shower


I’ve been through the process myself, and it was super easy to select and design my card! I wish it was this easy back when I got married nine years ago! Where were you Basic Invite back then? Lol! Especially as a busy mom, I don’t have time to deal with complicated processes. I love how Basic Invite makes it so simple and fast! But what’s even better is the price! So worth it! When I came to my final total, it was way cheaper than what I had paid for my cards nine years ago.

Step 1: Choose the occasion

Choose your occasion whether it’s for a wedding, baby shower, baptism, birthday, graduation, bridal shower and more! They also do business cards and thank you cards.

Step 2: Choose the invitation design

Choose from hundreds of stylish designs whether your style is more modern and contemporary to more traditional and classic. I love all of their designs! They’re just so fresh and just my style! I’ve been to other sites and their designs just seems so old and dated.

Step 3: Personalize your card. (The fun part!)

What makes Basic Invite stand out from the rest is that you can customize almost every aspect of the invitation. If you don’t like the colour or it doesn’t suit your theme, change it. You can choose from 180+ free colours in their design tool.

They also have unlimited colour combinations. They have over 160 colour options including gold and silver foil and now they are offering rose gold which is really popular right now!

For their wedding cards, you have over 100 fonts to choose from! That’s pretty impressive if you ask me. You can really make your card unique and one of a kind!

Not only do you personalize the card, but you can personalize the envelope as well! You have over 40 different envelope colours to choose from.

Step 4: Instant Online Preview

You don’t have to worry about how the product will turn out. Every time you make a change, it instantly shows up on the screen so what you see is exactly what you will get! This is really reassuring! Decreases the stress! LOL!

And if you are still not sure about your card design you can order a sample first to make sure everything is perfectly the way you want.

They also have a free address collection service with three easy steps. All you do is you share a link, collect addresses and they do the envelope printing for free which is AWESOME! I had to write all the addresses by hand which was so time consuming!   Basic Invite really makes everything fast and easy!

When baby no. 4 arrives, I’m definitely going to order my birth announcements from Basic Invite! I’m so excited! It’s going to look so awesome, something special to share with all of our family and friends!

So if you’ve got a special event coming and you need invitations and you’re contemplating whether you should make your invites versus ordering them online, I say…just order them through Basic Invite. That’s what I would have done if Basic Invite was around 9 years ago. LOL! Why? Because it saves you time, money and energy! And you get a beautiful invitation that you will be proud to share with all of your family and friends!
